The set up Nikon camera with 10-24 lens set at 11mm Remote release and a bubble level set up on the pod. Tricks would be an ND 8 filter bolted on to aid in a longer exposure. (the tourist remover) and the Lee 3-stop hard edge ND Grad filter in front to cut down that sky.
Take advantage with spots that are close to home. You just never know what you might get.
